Mason Teams Up With The Ready Set and Glamour Kills + Free Mixtape
Up and coming rapper Mason is ready to make his debut to the music scene, in a big way. After creating buzz in his hometown of Philadelphia and opening for major artists like Lupe Fiasco, his debut mixtape on Doghouse Records titled When Pigs Fly is released today. And if that isn’t enough, later this week Mason will release a sampler with Glamour Kills that features tracks he wrote in collaboration with Jordan of The Ready Set.
Mason talked exclusively with Buzznet about his upcoming mixtape…
“When Pigs Fly is a mini mixtape with yours truly ripping some of the sickest electro and house beats around,” Mason explains. “It’s different than anything else out there right now. It’s smart and edgy while still feeling melodically pleasing if you just want to listen and not think.”
Mason told us that his favorite track on the mixtape was single ‘She’s Like Rain.’
“It brings back fond memories but also because I sing on this track more than the others and in this song it really works. I’m proud of where my singing has gotten because if you would’ve told me that I’d eventually be singing like this on my work, I probably would’ve said “when pigs fly.”
He went on to talk about working with Jordan from The Ready Set and releasing the sampler through Glamour Kills.
“One aspect of working with Jordan that really blew me away was his versatility. When I first heard the production for “See You Naked” I couldn’t believe that Jordan had produced the track. I had no idea that he had such a large range in production. When he sent the track for my album afterwards it confirmed, Jordan’s a monster in production,” Mason told us.
“The songs with Jordan just came out really well and really different from each other. We’re from very different backgrounds and make very different kinds of music…These songs together paint a brilliant picture of unity and chemistry through music.”
Additionally, on Tuesday pop rock group Hollywood Ending will release their EP Forever 18 which features Mason on their single “Don’t Let Me Down.” The album will be available for download on iTunes.
